If you get the names from SHOW VARIABLES and try to use them in my.cnf you will
fail is some places:

1) table_type=MYISAM
Config requires to use default_table_type

2) tx_isolation
Config requires to use transaction_isolation

How to repeat:
Just try to start mysqld with option
./mysqld --table_type=MYISAM
